At least that's how some people here see it (and by some people I mean next9).
Sorry, I couldn't resist, there was too much logic in your post. We can't let the voice of reason prevail on this thread!

Bon Dieu! You're forgetting all the important packages Ubuntu's contributed back to Debian! Like update-manager and update-notifier! And, um, well, um, let's see...um...Oh dear, see I can become selective with info too.Wow, I would have never thought of that. So you're basically saying that the Ubuntu people are using GPL'd Debian sources in ways that GPL allows?
I guess they should change the license into something less permissive. Those parasites at Canonical must be stopped at any cost. Let's not forget what permissive licenses did to Wine, they had to change the license in order to stop parasites like Cedega.
Oh, would you like fries with that hypocrisy?
This is the referenced article: http://www.linux-magazine.com/Online...r-Desktop-Help
and I don't see anything talking about Ubuntu parasitism in there. In other words, you just provided a "real world example" of a quotation fail.
If Greg said:
He [also] meant Linux as entire OS, because Freebsd and Opensolaris are entire OS'es. So you called him a pedantic idiot, right?KDE and Gnome aren't relevant, or part of Linux, because KDE and Gnome can also run on FreeBSD and OpenSolaris as well
